PATRISTIC CHRISTOLOGY FROM A CONTEMPORARY PERSPECTIVE - One day conference at Heythrop College on 26.10.2017

Event date: Thursday 26th October, 10:00am
Location: Bellarmine Room, Heythrop College
here the link
This one-day symposium takes its lead from Aaron Riches’ book Ecce Homo: On the Divine Unity of Christ (Eerdmans, 2016), which has been acclaimed as “one of the most substantial contributions to the subject of the past thirty years” (Janet Martin Soskice in The Times Literary Supplement). The symposium will explore the central argument of the book that the tradition shaped by the ecumenical councils of the first millennium, received in East and West, sheds light on the theological conversation today and leads to a fuller and richer understanding of the mystery of Christ.

10.15     Dr Aaron Riches (Seminario Mayor de Granada) 
              Cyril of Alexandria as the standard of conciliar orthodoxy
11.30     Coffee/tea break
11.45     Dr Benjamin Gleede (University of Tubingen) 
             Sonship as unicity-criterion for Christ’s hypostasis
13.00     Lunch
14.00     Prof Richard Price (Heythrop College) 
              Christology in the iconoclast controversy
15.15     Coffee/tea break
15.30     Prof Johannes Hoff (Heythrop College) 
              Chalcedon – neither end nor beginning: 
Christology in a post-confessional age
              With a response by Prof. John Milbank (University of Nottingham)
The symposium is expected to conclude around 5.00pm.
Please use the Book Now link above.  The conference fee is £30.00 (which includes lunch and coffee/tea breaks). There is a reduced rate of £15 for students.
